Postdoctoral fellow, Harvard University

My research explores the evolution of early animals - utilizing exceptionally preserved fossil material from Paleozoic rocks (540-250 million years old). I study the diversity, form, and function of early arthropods and their close relatives (a group which includes modern insects, myriapods, and crabs).
